"WELCOME HOME"

“Team AMVETS™ Welcome Home Program” was developed by Team AMVETS™ and the Department of Veteran Affairs (VA) in 2012. The VA HUD-VASH housing program assists California’s homeless Veterans by providing a voucher for permanent housing. Team AMVETS™ transforms the residence into a real home complete with furniture, household items and appliances, thanks to donors and volunteers, entirely at the expense of Team AMVETS™.

Specially trained service officers assist Veterans in claim development, education benefits, and camaraderie with other Veterans at school. The Team AMVETS™ College Transition Program is located on many junior colleges in Los Angeles County and Orange County.
